Thanks

Agreed, it would be safer to have no names but in this case it would be
difficult to avoid using some that have already been used informally.

Simple solution is don't publish the names - '[genus] sp.nov.' with no
epithet would suffice.

Dear All



I'm helping to edit a field guide to a difficult group of ferns. The author
is sadly no longer with us. There are a number of names used which not been
formally published. Although I don't believe that anything in the guide
would meet the requirements for publication under the Code, I am anxious to
avoid any possibility of accidental publication. I have in mind to state
something such as: "This work is issued with the disclaimer that it is not
intended for the purposes of botanical nomenclature." Would this be
water-tight, or does this need strengthening or changing?



I'm aware that there was some discussion on this with regard to the
Zoological Code on this list a while ago.



Thanks



Anthony Pigott
